Bronwyn and Lucy are here representing the group from Girl's High in Sleaford who won third prize for this fab fair ground/carnival quilt. Bronwyn, an art teacher at Kesteven and Sleaford Girl's Grammar School was the organizer and Lucy one of the many contributors. The girls were so keen they gave up their lunch time to work on the project. Bronwyn used a quilt-as-you-go method to make the best use of limited time. This enabled the girls to work separately on individual panels and join them together to create a vibrant interpretation of the fair ground theme. Clicking the image should give a better view of the quilt.
This quilt took third prize in the Secondary School's Competition at the 2011 Festival of Quilts! Not bad for a first try!! It's so fun when the winners are people you know! I'm looking forward to what they come up with next year.
